Parking and traffic laws apply throughout the City of Dubbo to ensure the safe and fair use of roads for everyone's benefit.

Parking enforcement ensures:

  • vehicle turnover
  • availability of car spaces
  • education of the parking and regulations to public road related areas.

Enforcement is also carried out in residential areas to address:

  • parking restrictions around schools and neighbourhood shopping centres
  • driveway obstructions
  • heavy vehicle parking.


Dubbo Regional Council (DRC) will trial car parking sensor technology in Dubbo’s Central Business District (CBD) to alleviate challenges local businesses face around customer car parking availability. 

DRC have installed car parking sensors in 150 car spaces along parts of Church, Macquarie and Brisbane Streets. The three-year car parking sensor project trial will commence from Monday 22 August 2022.  The existing parking limits will remain unchanged. 

The in-ground sensor is a small electronic device that is installed in the road surface within the parking bay to detect and record the time a vehicle arrives and departs the bay. The sensor records vehicle arrival time and if the vehicle overstays the maximum time permitted in the bay. Parking officers are alerted of overstay vehicles in the area.  Parking officers may then attend the site of the over-stayed vehicle and determine if a parking infringement needs to be issued. The sensors are programmed to allow for our grace periods of 15 minutes over in a 1P (1 hour) and 20 minutes in a 2P (2 Hour) zone. The sensors are extremely accurate and reliable. Each day an automatic health check is processed to ensure the sensor is working correctly. 

As part of the trial Council will investigate the use of technology to launch an app, which can display real-time visibility of available parking on those areas with sensors.
